Nearly as large as a crow, the Pileated Woodpecker is the largest woodpecker in most of North America. Its loud ringing calls and huge, rectangular excavations in dead trees announce its presence in forests across the continent.•A Pileated Woodpecker pair stays together on its territory all year round. It will defend the territory in all seasons, but will tolerate floaters during the winter. This is one of the 2 babies that live in this area, they have not been flying long and they still crash land. Captured in my yard in Ft. Myers, Fl.
